Error Codes

If the method fails, an error is raised, and Err.Number can be set to the following value:

Value Description
E_NOTIMPL Not implemented.


By default, the RenderEngine object loads every source before rendering a project. This can result in a long start-up time. With dynamic reconnection, sources are loaded only when needed. This can shorten the start-up time, but possibly interfere with smooth playback. Generally, the more source clips that a project uses, the more you might benefit from dynamic reconnection.

The SmartRenderEngine object does not implement this method.
